Ten question for Nigel Gwilliam, Director of Media Affairs at the IPA, to find out what makes him tick - scuba gear, parsnips and Bitcoin are part of the eclectic mix.
My scuba gear, gathered over many years
Bio-degradable bubble wrap.., including a version painted red with "stress sheet" written on it (see Red Dwarf)
Best: running my own limited company for 10 years
Worst: not investing in Bitcoin when we were introduced to it on the 2015 West Coast Mission
I didn’t taste delicious roast parsnips until my first Christmas at university, my parents kept them a secret because my dad loathed them. "Oh, you’ve discovered parsnips have you."
